Pèsach o Pesah (ebraico פסח), detta anche Pasqua ebraica, è una festività ebraica che dura otto giorni (sette nel solo Israele) e che ricorda la liberazione del popolo ebraicodall'Egitto e il suo esodo verso la Terra Promessa. Nel Tanakh, il nome di Pesach indica particolarmente la cena rituale celebrata nella notte fra il 14 e il 15 del mese di Nisan in ricordo di quella che aveva preceduto la liberazione dalla schiavitù in Egitto; i successivi sette giorni vengono chiamati Festa dei Pani non lievitati (o Festa dei Pani Azzimi). Questa settimana trae origine da un'antica festa per il raccolto delle prime spighe d'orzo e il loro utilizzo per preparare focacce senza lasciare il tempo necessario per il formarsi di nuovo lievito e così ottenere la fermentazione della nuova farina. La pesach, quindi, segna il principio della primavera ed è anche chiamata Chag haaviv, cioè "festa della primavera". Fuori dalla Terra di Israele i giorni degli azzimi sono otto, tranne eccezioni (cfr Calendario ebraico, Diaspora ebraica e Rosh Chodesh): i primi due e gli ultimi due sono giorni di festa (in ebraico Yom Tov). La Pasqua è una delle tre "feste di pellegrinaggio" (Shalosh Regalim) assieme a Pentecoste (Shavuot) e Festa delle Capanne (Sukkot). #jews#ebrei#pesach
“Remember that at one time you Gentiles in the flesh, called “the uncircumcision” by what is called the circumcision, which is made in the flesh by hands - remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.” (Ephesians 2:11-13) • As I reflect on the meaning of Good Friday, this passage by the apostle Paul helps me realize that we’re illegitimate children who are found, adopted, loved, and accepted into a royal family of the highest order. • That adoption came at a heavy price though: Jesus, the incarnate Son, had to shed His blood on a cross to appease the Father’s wrath for the numerous insults we have done against His name. • God promised Abraham that in him all the families of the world would be blessed. • Jesus, being a descendant of Abraham in the flesh, fulfills this promise by giving His life up so all who trust in Him as Lord and Savior, whether Jew or Gentile, would receive God’s blessings after reconciliation through His blood. • Building a community takes sacrifice. Forgiving people can be hard when you feel mistreated, being patient with others can be hard when you feel misunderstood, loving others can be hard when you feel ostracized and insulted. • Yet Jesus did all these things, He forgave, was patient, loved and even died on behalf of those who hated Him enough to kill Him. • The cross has a twofold message: how terrible our sins are and how great God’s love is towards rebellious sinners. • Finding the balance between mercy and justice towards our neighbors is a lifelong struggle but the task is made easier for those who covenant themselves to Lord Jesus.
Dziś 76 rocznica wybuchu powstania w getcie warszawskim. Jak co roku na ulicach Warszawy rozdawane są symboliczne papierowe żonkile. Dla mnie jest to ważny dzień, ponieważ dzięki projektom artystycznym w Muzeum Historii Żydów Polskich POLIN czuje się emocjonalnie związany z tym miejscem. #chorpolin#polin#choir#singer#jews#theatre#music#actor#performance
We are so impressed with how beautiful China is. The attention to detail (like a lit up sink!) is exquisite, and the hotel staff are so gracious and helpful. Any time I’m with a lot of #jews like a #pesach program, I feel especially aware that we should only make a #kiddushhashem with kind and courteous behavior, and when I started my trip with a sore neck which only got worse on a nearly 14 hour #flight I decided to check out the #hotel#spa for a pre #passover#massage When I went to pay, I realized I didn’t know the appropriate amount to #tip and I did not want to look like a cheap Jew. Online it said tipping is considered rude in China, which I could not fathom, so I searched more. Then I found a site which said you can give 20% tips at nice hotels in Hong Kong. I’m not there but I figured “close enough.” When I tried to include a tip, the spa staff refused and told me “we don’t take tips.” I may have inadvertently caused a #chillulhashem in an attempt to be generous 🙄 Lesson of the day is, when in China...
4-6 When #omar_ibn_alkhattab entered #jerusalem, he searched for "Kaab Al-Ahbaar" who was #jewish#rabbi before he converted to #islam & asked him about the place of the rock because The Prince of Jerusalem had tried to mislead Omar from finding the place of the rock, but "kaab" helped him to find it, According to some sources, Omar took with him the Jews who showed him the real place of the rock, The Christians had exaggerated in throwing dirt on the place of the rock until it reached the mihrab of David & the #romans had made the rock a dustbin because it was a holy place for the #jews & When Omar entered Jerusalem & verify the place of the rock he ordered to clean the area & he helped in cleaning by transferring dust & dirt using his cloth to carry dirt, after cleaning, omar prayed in mehrab David Perhaps the highlight of the role of Jews here was the attempt to intervene in the accounts of Islamic history in general & the stories of #levant victory in particular, and the revival of religious landmarks in Jerusalem after being obliterated by #christians حينما دخل عمر بن الخطاب #القدس بحث عن #كعب_الأحبار الذي كان يهوديًّا ثم أسلم وسأله عن مكان الصخرة (أي #المسجد_الأقصى) وكان أمير القدس قد حاول أن يضلله عن مكانه فاستدل عمر على مكانها من كعب الأحبار وتذكر بعض المصادر أن عمر اصطحب معه #اليهود الذين دلوه على المكان الحقيقي للصخرة وكان النصارى قد بالغوا في إلقاء الكناسة على مكان الصخرة حتى وصلت إلى محراب داود وقد كانت الروم جعلوا الصخرة مزبلة لأنها قبلة اليهود فلما فتح عمر بيت المقدس وتحقق من موضع الصخرة أمر بإزالة ما عليها من الكناسة حتى ان عمر نقل التراب عن
I've recently red on certain walls that some morons still want to scare jews, or more. I can't believe that mankind have a so short memory that it can't learn from the past. I can't believe that mankind have already done that, and bears the seeds of relative facts, thoughts and actions. So I went to Shoa memorial in Paris, to strengthen my feelings against these morons, and nourish my vocabulary against this way of mind. As always in this kind of places, it took my breath away and my tears out. But I have a few more words, beginning by those two: NEVER AGAIN (Pictures:walls of names, abstract. Hundreds of thousands of deported or killed Jewish people during ww2 in France) #shoa#shoamemorial#memorialdelashoa#jews#antisemitism#antisemitisme#fuckracism#neveragain#nazi#collaboration#milice#wallofnames#murdesnoms
I suggest Jews that you follow gods final book the Quran because you seem like you don't understand your own book and l can't blame you for that because it's old and not for you for someone else and if you think that god doesn't want you (yes he does)he wants everyone. #jewish#torah#prophetmoses#judiasm#kingdavid#pslam#pslams#jewishmusic#jewishmusicians#jewishfoodie#kosher#kosherfood#jewishphotographer#jewishphotographers#jewishweddingphotographer#jewishweddingphotographers#jewishweddingphotography#jewishfashion#jewishwigs#jewsforjesus#orthodoxjews#jew#jews#jewishlife#jewishstyle#משה#מֹשֶׁה#jewishmemes#prophetelijah
#san_simera 19 Απριλίου, το 1943 ξέσπασε στην Πολωνία η εξέγερση του Γκέτο της Βαρσοβίας, μετά την είσοδο των γερμανικών στρατευμάτων στο γκέτο προκειμένου να μαζέψουν τους εναπομείναντες Εβραίους. Ήδη από τον προηγούμενο χρόνο οι Εβραίοι στέλνονταν σταδιακά στο στατόπεδο συγκέντρωσης Τρεμπλίνκα και όταν έγινε γνωστό τι ακριβώς τους περίμενε εκεί, οι Εβραίοι του Γκέτο οργάνωσαν ένοπλες ομάδες με πιο γνωστή την Εβραϊκή Οργάνωση Μαχητών (ZOB). Κατά το δεύτερο κίνημα μαζικών απελάσεων στις 18 Ιανουαρίου οι μαχητές επιτέθηκαν στους Γερμανούς. Οι περισσότεροι από αυτούς σκοτώθηκαν στη μάχη, ωστόσο αρκετοί Εβραίοι διέφυγαν εν μέσω της αναταραχής και στις 21 Ιανουαρίου αποφασίστηκε η αναστολή των εκτοπισμών. Αυτό ενθάρρυνε τους εναπομείναντες να οργανωθούν καλύτερα και να φτιάξουν κρυψώνες σε περίπτωση νέου κύματος εκτοπισμών. Οι γερμανικές δυνάμεις σκόπευαν να αρχίσουν την επιχείρηση διάλυσης του Γκέτο στις 19 Απριλίου 1943, την παραμονή του εβραϊκού Πάσχα. Όταν οι μονάδες των SS εισέβαλαν εκείνο το πρωί, οι δρόμοι ήταν έρημοι. Σχεδόν όλοι οι κάτοικοι είχαν πάει σε κρυψώνες ή καταφύγια. Η
#christophluxenberg , a #scholar of Ancient #semiticlanguages in Germany, argues that the #koran has been misread & mistranslated for centuries. His work, based on the earliest copies of the Koran, maintains that parts of Islam’s holy book are derived from pre-existing Christian #aramaic texts that were misinterpreted by later #islamicscholars who prepared editions of the Koran commonly read today. ...Luxenberg’s radical theory is that many of the text’s difficulties can be clarified when it is seen as closely related to Aramaic, the language of most #middleeastern#jews & #christians at the time. - The New York Times
